how do you get cheated
Yes, & got accused of cheating! (20%)
About the "since 1485" thing, this is incorrect. The modern castling rule wasn't established until early 17th century, and the rule of en passant wasn't universal until late 19th century.
The en passant rule was made only because of the 'two squares' move a pawn can make if it hasn't moved yet. That is it. period. En passant is french for "in passing". You captured the pawn in passing. It is only a commodity to the two squares move for pawns. It wouldn't be "fair" if a player could just make a passed pawn when you already have a pawn on his fourth rank. So to answer your question, NO, en passant is only used if the pawn tries to scoot by yours with his two squares move. See what I mean about people having different rule viarables?! If your stated rule was correct we would never have those tricky promotion tactics...
It's interesting to note that there are variations to the en passant rule. I believe that if a pawn passes a 5th rank pawn on a diagonal (as opposed to straight up an adjacent file) when capturing a piece, the rule applies. Will someone more expert than myself confirm or deny this, please?
One of the least known rules to acquaintances of chess. I have a chess set in my locker at work along with three rule books that explain this rule (among others) to prove its validity. I often ask before we even start a game if they know A. Castling B. Pawn promotion and C. "en passant. On another note, a lot of inexperienced players have different rules for the game which they had handed down to them from, well, who knows. Hard to believe too since these rules have been the same since... 1485! But eveyone knows the rules to Monopoly by heart.
As you take e.p., always remember to yell "YOU SHALL NOT PASS!!!"
here, argument i guess to about 'Capture ring En Passant' releated?,
but i my english level then i can't understand correctly words mean of "Ever taken a pawn 'en passant' before". still i understand statement as japanese language structure. same timely i can't use google translate service because, console on net is interface is single. then i need more expirence to use english or more familier with english, .
by the way, on my personal project zeph, i write chess AI code a little,
from 1997, i little to write to around at 'capture ring en passant' .
i remember this rule express how solve by C language code.
i tackle to solve this problem, did or will.
i analog ly practice chess on real chess board and pieces then,
i want to write code for evaluation function and act with my AI,
but now my progress levle of my project then character input output
system how effect on local system as this now my subject on problem.
haha I like that greene
can you do this in live chess?
Oh I did it a few times but never knew the name of this move, thanks ;)
in my highschool state tournament, i did an en passant and my opponent accused me of cheating. It took like 5 minutes to get a steward to resolve the issue but the face of my opponent was priceless when he found out it was a real move.
je vais l'essayer
I've found a helpful trick when teaching the rule to newer (or even not so newer) players, after they get past the "denial & accusations phase."
You push the captured pawn back one square, saying "Not so fast, Mr Speedypants!" or "Where do you think YOU'RE going?," and then take it. :)
When I first learned of en passant, it came up in the very next game I played and it was quite critical; it led to checkmate and while I have not encountered it so dramatically since, it has become hard for me to imagine the game without it.
At my first tournament I used en passant to quicken a won game and my opponent didnt know the rule so we called an arbitor and it was declared legal. I went on to win without difficulty :)
It's concerning how only 90% of us have done this...
Over the Board getting accused can happen if your playing someone who is playing in their 1st tournament
how are you cheating if you make a legal move? if it were illegal, the server would not allow you to move there.
can't you explain these steps greene? haha jk
